HOMERO V. RAMIREZ
March 30, 1937 – March 3, 2021
“When tomorrow starts without me and I’m not here to see,
If the sun should rise and find your eyes, all filled with tears for me.
I wish so much you wouldn’t cry, the way you did today,
While thinking of the many things, we didn’t get to say.
I know how much you love me, as much as I love you
And each time that you think of me, I know you’ll miss me too.
When tomorrow starts without me, don’t think that we’re apart,
For every time you think of me, I’m right here in your heart.”
Homero Ramirez, 83, joined our Lord in His heavenly kingdom on Wednesday, March 3, 2021, in Humble, TX. He will always be remembered for his humor, kindness, and unwavering work ethic.

Later, he carried tile, which he drove and exported from Nuevo Laredo to Houston. He made Houston his home and became the CEO of Ramirez Tire Shop.
